In our last blog we discussed Annex SL, the initiative to provide identical structure, text and common terms and definitions for management system standards of the future.
Annex SL will ensure consistency among future and revised management system standards and make integrated use simpler. It will also make the standards easier to read, and in so doing, more understandable for users.
As a result, we’ll see some changes soon, including ISO 27000 (Information Security) when it’s published in late 2013 to adopt Annex SL. Already, the Business Continuity Management standard (ISO 22301:2012) was developed using a draft version of this and ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 are also currently under revision using this framework.
Expect to see the high-level structure and identical core text in ISO/IEC 27001 and the common terms and core definitions in ISO/IEC 27000.
As a team in the business of continuous improvement, we applaud these changes and look forward to further adoption of Annex SL.
Confused about the changes ahead? Simply contact us and we’ll walk you through it.
